I'd like to make delicious healthier challah. Anyone has a good recipe using Grain Brain flour? I need something that my family won't notice the look of...so it can't look like whole wheat.

Try spelt. Its much less dense and has a better taste then whole wheat. I find whole wheat bitter which is why most people add a lot of sweetener to it.

I’ve been making spelt challah with their flour for a while now. My kids can’t tell the difference. I sub it cup for cup for white flour in my favorite challah recipe. Ask them at grain brain which is the easiest to bake with. I think it’s the non organic one.

I use their white spelt flour. Comes out delicious. I put about 3/4 cup less water than when I use reg white flour. Or you can do half whole wheat/half white - also delicious, but if you don't want your kids to notice, go for white spelt which looks like reg.

What was your experience with the Organic Spelt Flour? Did you use Organic Whole Spelt Flour?

We have been using their white spelt flour for years, and every time anyone finds out that it's not regular white flour they are surprised, and we have MANY guest.

We use our regular challah recipe.

5 pounds white spelt flour
3 eggs
1 cup canola oil
1 cup sugar
4-5 cups water. Put 4 and then add more if needed.
4 Tablespoons yeast
1 handful of salt

It also braids beautifully.

I've been using their white spelt flour and always got delicious fluffy/airy challah. The last batch I baked last week came out very heavy, the dough was darker and felt different. - my mom and MIL had the same experience. Did a/o have this experience recently?
